Augustinus

This single-column manuscript contains five partly incomplete texts by Augustine; it consists of two parts that clearly differ from one another, but that have been a single unit since before 1100, as can be seen from the entry in the Allerheiligen Abbey register of books from about 1100 (Min. 17, f. 306v). While the second part (69 ff.) is undecorated, the first part has an incipit page and an initial with scroll ornamentation. In the 15th century this codex, like many others, received a new leather binding with an inscribed front cover, metal bosses and a clasp, as well as a title label on 1r; a fragment from a 12th century missal with neumes was used for the front pastedown.

Augustinus

This copy of two texts by Augustine is written in a single column, mostly undecorated but very carefully executed; the manuscript is listed in the All Saints Abbey register of books from about 1100 (Min. 17, f. 306v). Particular mention should be made of the original Romanesque binding from the time of the creation of the manuscript; only the spine was covered with parchment in the 19th century, as in the case of Min. 34.

Augustinus, Alcuinus

This single-column manuscript contains, in addition to two works by Augustine, the Allerheiligen Abbey Library’s only copy of a work by Alcuin (commentary on Genesis); the manuscript is listed in the Allerheiligen Abbey register of books from about 1100 as an addendum (Min. 17, f. 306v). The display script in the beginning, the three initials with scroll ornamentation, and the incipit page of the Genesis commentary stylistically suggest a later origin. Particular mention should be made of the original period Romanesque binding; only the labels on the spine are a later addition. (spe)

Augustinus

The very worn and soiled pages 1r and 88v suggest that this single-column, mostly undecorated copy of Augustine’s Enchiridion, produced in Tours in the 9th century, was for a long time used unbound. It probably received its first binding in the 12th century in Schaffhausen; at that time, the missing final part of the text was added on a double leaf (89-90) at the end. This is the only known manuscript from Tours in the library of Allerheiligen Abbey; it is listed in the abbey’s register of books from about 1100 (Min. 17, f. 306v). The Romanesque binding has been largely preserved; only the flyleaves and pastedowns were replaced in the 19th century and, as with Min. 32‬‬, the spine was covered with parchment. (spe)

Augustinus

This copy of texts and letters by Augustine is written in a single column and is undecorated except for two initials with scroll ornamentation; the manuscript is listed in the All Saints Abbey register of books from about 1100 (Min. 17, f. 306v).

Particular mention should be made of the Romanesque binding, which has been preserved without later alterations. (spe)

Augustinus, Isidorus

Numerous hands participated in the creation of this single-column, undecorated manuscript for regular use; it contains texts by Augustine and Isidore of Seville. The writing material was parchments of differing quality, some of which were reused. The manuscript is listed in the Allerheiligen Abbey register of books from about 1100 (Min. 17, f. 306v). In the 15th century this codex, like many others, received a new leather binding with metal bosses and two clasps; a fragment from a 12th century missal with neumes was used for the rear pastedown.

Ambrosius, Augustinus

As attested by the Allerheiligen Abbey register of books from about 1100 (Min. 17, f. 306v), the two parts that constitute this manuscript were united in the 11th century already. While the first part (Ambrosius, De excessu fratrum) is undecorated, the second part, containing five texts by Augustine, begins with an opening page which is at the same time a table of contents. In the 15th century this codex, like many others, received a new leather binding with metal bosses and two clasps. As with Min. 20‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬ and Min. 24‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬, fragments from a 14th century necrology of All Saints Abbey were used as flyleaves. (spe)

The binding is most likely contemporary with the production of the manuscript. (spe)

This is a mostly undecorated copy of the second book of Gregory’s Homeliae in Ezechielem, written in a single-column. The manuscript is listed in the Allerheiligen Abbey register of books from about 1100 (Min. 17, f. 306v). Onto the verso of the first leaf and the recto of the last, which perhaps were originally intended as pastedowns, there later were copied documents from the 12th century. In the 15th century this codex, like many others, received a new leather binding with metal bosses and two clasps. (spe)

Gregorius I. Papa

This unadorned, single-column copy of Gregory’s Dialogues, in which many hands had a share, has numerous gaps as well as later erasures and corrections. The manuscript is listed in the Allerheiligen Abbey register of books from about 1100 (Min. 17, f. 306v); however, except for an addition to the text from the 12th century (f 58 r/v), it was not written in Schaffhausen. It remains to be determined whether it served as (one of) the models for Min. 48. Signs of wear on the first (f 1r) and last (f 121v) page suggest that the manuscript remained unbound until the 15th century when, like many others, it received a leather binding with metal bosses and two clasps.

Gregorius I. Papa

This manuscript, listed in the supplements to the Allerheiligen Abbey register of books from about 1100 (Min. 17, f. 306v), consists of two parts. The first part contains a careful copy of Gregory’s Dialogues in a single-column, which is also transmitted in Min. 47; it has a page with a decorative initial (f 1r) and a portrait of the author (f 1v). Especially remarkable are the life of Benedict in Book 2 (f 23r) and the beginnings of Book 3 (38r) and 4 (69r), which exhibit large initials with scroll ornamentation. The binding is Romanesque; it is not clear whether quire V between f 32v and f 33r was missing from the start or whether it was lost during a modern restoration. The second part (from f 104r, quires XV to XVIII) contains a mostly undecorated copy of the life of John Eleymon by Leontios of Neapolis. (spe)

This is the first part of a six-volume copy of Gregory’s Moralia in Iob (Min. 50-55), containing Books 1-5; it is listed in the Allerheiligen Abbey register of books from about 1100 (Min. 17, f. 306v).

Discolorations and signs of wear on the first (f. 1r) and last (f. 132v) page suggest that the manuscript remained unbound until the 15th century when, like many others, it received a leather binding with metal bosses and two clasps. Two leaves from Min. 110 (2nd half of the 12th century) were used as pastedowns. (spe)
